sic1314 (3283) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Poured a slightly hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of light barnyard, lactose and light fruit. Light body, flavour much as the aroma. Average.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This doughy and cushy Saison shares plenty of rusticity and fruitiness alongside polite herbal hoppiness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A towering head of foam decorates the hazy straw blond.
-From nose to finish, this is very authentic.
-Bready malts and yeast character are nicely harmonious.
-Effervescence is intense and its big bubbles help to air out the mouthfeel.

Bottle.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle: Poured a dirty cloudy beige color male with a nice huge white foamy head with great retention and some very good lacing. Aroma consists of light rustic flavours with some light yeasty and bready notes. Taste is dominated by quite a peppery yeasty punch with some rustic malt flavours with light hay notes. Body is full with great bottle conditioning and some strong carbonation. Very enjoyable and easily drinkable with nice spicy and peppery notes.

Freaky_tiki (543) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Pours golden with foamy champagne style cap. This is a crisp saison, with a carbonation tweaked tighter than a crack smoking mayor. Every pour pops the foam over the rim. Nice saison effects: grass, lemon zest, yeast. Refreshing.

750ml bottle. Bottled Jun 14, 2013. Pours a fairly clear light golden colour with a two finger, fluffy, off-white head. Aroma has notes of lemon and orange citrus, yeast, candy sugar, and slight bubble gum. Taste is crisp. Notes of citrus and yeast. Slightly dry finish. Low-medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing in the mouth with an effervescent carbonation. Overall pretty good. Might get again.

Metalchopz (2276) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Single bottle from the LCBO, brown, wine-looking with a cork, cage and nice flag label around neck. Pours a hazy golden-yellow colour with a frothy white head, lots of retention and foamy lacing. Beautiful nose of Belgian Ale yeast, spices, oranges, wheat, apples and mild grass. Crisp refreshing mouthfeel with just a tad of dryness. Wheat taste with some peach notes and the grass counter-balancing. Quite a nice saison and my first from this brewery. Really hoping we can try some more from them.
